Netflix updates API to remove expiry dates for movies, shows

Netflix has removed the expiry dates for films and TV shows from its public API, following recent reports that the streaming service would drop around 1,800 items of content in May alone. According to a company blog post, the change is being made due to the inaccuracy of the expiry date due to the "frequent, often last minute, changes in content flow," though the field will still appear with a default date in the API, in order to avoid errors in third-party apps.

Raspberry Pi camera module goes on sale, can capture 5MP images, 1080p video

The Raspberry Pi camera module, an add-on for the budget micro computer, has gone on sale. The five-megapixel camera with fixed focus connects via a ribbon cable, and is able to capture H.264 1080p video at 30fps, with the camera able to be used to record video and images to the device's SD card, as well as streaming over a network. The module is listed on the Farnell Element 14 store with a price of 16.56 ($25).
